Green seed is the major issue for most growers waiting to finish canola harvest. Green seed levels in some fields are not dropping and are unlikely to drop further without a long period of moist and warm weather. Growers may have to accept the losses, combine now to salvage the quality they do have, then start shopping for buyers who will take delivery soon.
Growers in the Peace need a string of dry warm days to finish off the crop.

Check all canola bins. Canola with any of the following is at higher risk of spoilage: high green, high oil, high temperature, high moisture, high dockage. Combinations of these factors will make stored seed even more unstable.
